The Australian Surrogacy Podcast Episode 86: Adelle. Adelle became a mother almost two years ago when she gave birth to her son, Lincoln. The birth was smooth, but the Adelle suffered birth trauma in the aftermath. Adelle suffered a significant injury arising from the birth, which resulted in her having an ileostomy, which ultimately saved her life. Part of her journey of recovery and healing from her birth trauma including setting up her personal Instagram page at Overnight Ostomate where she found support and solidarity from other people with ileostomies.

Adelle now runs Haven Legal Co, (also on Instagram @Haven Legal Co) where you can get your wills and estate planning sorted. Whether you are an intended parent or surrogate, you should make sure your will is up to date to reflect your intentions for where you want your estate to go if you or your partner die.
